    I have been working at Arby's part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people I work with are decent.

    Cons

    The company over works people for a little bit of pay. Constantly unedr pressure for next to nothing. Then you can't even get a second job cause they randomize your shifts so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people more because we work too hard!

    Pros

    If you enjoy a very fast paced environment, this is the place for you! The good ends there.

    Cons

    Overworked and underappreciated. You are expected to work with broke down equipment, in a building that is falling apart. Customers constantly complain about the temperature because the HVAC is actually 30 years old and doesn't work correctly.

    I worked at Arby's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I honestly can't think of anything positive about working here...

    Well, I guess if you need work experience or a first-time job then it's a good place to start.

    Cons

    Extremely rude supervisors--favouritism played a huge part here. There was absolutely no proper training. It was difficult to request time off because it was always understaffed. The one time I ordered food from here, I didn't receive the employees' discount because I wasn't "on the clock".

    Pros

    Customers and it is a job. Some fun people to work with.

    Cons

    Having to work with Reginal Manager's in Southwest Missouri who act more like a bully rather than professional. Lots if favoritism within this company. Favorites, rudeness, no good pros at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees nice and you might be able to keep some of the good ones. Also constructive criticism goes a long way rather than making people feel like nothing they do is ever good enough. That is why I no longer work for them.

    Pros

    Very clean and puts FIFO protocol at top priority. Never keeps bad product.

    Cons

    Management is downright abusive of the employees. A lot of gossip and favoritism. No respect for crew members. Corporate does nothing to fight back against verbal abuse from management, even when reported. Training is horrible-- mostly have to learn from having to do things under pressure rather than being taught.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a fine line between a LEADER and a BOSS. Try being a leader for once and respect and guide those beneath you rather than force them to do everything for you and treat them badly.

    Pros

    The people were always friendly. The service was always good.

    Cons

    The lack of Training and Trained Managers who respect everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make sure that everyone is trained for at least a week.
    I was trained on fries the first day. Then my GM gave me the guide on how to make the sandwiches. She said I would learn line. I was never taught line. Instead the shift manager had me close kitchen two nights in a row. The first I was barely trained just given a list of when to have the tasks done, shown how to do dishes and given different chemicals to clean with but not shown how to clean the equipment. The second night I was let go for not developing a speed.
